Make products usable by everyone.
Developing for Accessibility
Accessibility refers to making a website or application available for all users regardless of method of access or ability. U-M is legally required to make applications and information accessible for the campus community. Other universities have been sued for failing to comply.
Accessibility can also improve usability and findability for everyone.
Getting Started With Accessibility
Coding for accessibility is approached in two ways:
- Designing and developing tools following accepted accessibility standards to decrease issues for people with disabilities.
- Creating tools compatible with commonly used assistive technologies.
